Special Discount at Zia Gianna~ Italian Bakery & Caffe

Craving breakfast foods or simply want a quiet cozy place to hang out while enjoying your coffee? Then Zia Gianna, the new Italian café in Dorchester, is worthy of your attention. With the warm-colored interior, scenery photos of the Mediterranean island up on the walls, and kind greetings from the owner Nino Barbalace, one will sure feel as if they have arrived in Sicily as they enter the café. 

Nino's signature Brioche sandwiches were inspired by American-style biscuit breakfast sandwiches. Traditionally, a brioche is eaten with whipped cream or jam as Italian breakfast is mainly sweet. In an attempt to satisfy the American taste buds Nino decided to add pancetta (Italian bacon), ham, sausage, cheese and much more to the already flavorful brioche. >> Read More
